Good dark, malty, strong ale but beer of this strength should have a more distinctive flavour.

When I tried this I really did feel that this just wasn't anything special. Fair enough, its got a half decent kick to it, but you might find yourself struggling to finish it off quickly - just so you can try something else

Kentish strong ale of golden brown colour, good head, malty aroma with caramel and oak. Nutty flavour, well hopped, "raw" in the edges (which I like). (500 ml bottle). Would love to try this one cask conditioned!

This is not a good beer, it is average at best. I am struggling to find a good beer from Shephard Neame!! A bitter malty taste.

Deep golden, strong ale with a sweet but sharp, malty taste. Some bitterness in the background and a strong tasting finish that lasts.

Very good ale, orange after taste puts it above above many beers. Very distinctive.

A nice dark colour with a strong bitter taste.
not unpleasant but not worth another.

A robust Kentish style ale with a very traditional taste and a malty balance in the finish. A little ordinary by todays standards but I am sure many would enjoy this ale.

Had this in Coanes, Johnstone April 1990. Russet red in colour with frothy white head. Very hoppy aroma with good mouthfeel. Fiery pale malt base giving a warm baked bread flavour in the mouth, just a hint of green apple and sultana in the fruit notes. Then the hops kick in and you can taste the resin - full on in the aftertaste. Malty notes in the finish however. Better balanced than Spitfire and more rounded overall.
